3rd Egyptian-German Workshop on
Resorbable Bone Implants

Ulm University, Villa Eberhardt
July 15 - 16, 2016


Together with researchers and experts from Egypt and Germany we will have lectures and discussions about the mathematical modeling and simulation, the design and development of resorbable materials and their clinical application as bone implants. 

This workshop is the second one taking place at the Ulm University and belongs to a two-years series as part of a BMBF-DAAD grant given to Prof. Gerd Baumann (German University of Cairo, GUC) and Dr. Ulrich Simon (Ulm University).
